Day 14 - Total Weight loss for suggested two week detox period : 7 lbs. I should be on Phase Two tomorrow but I think I might stick with Phase One for another week. I just want to get in the right place before I hit the plateau during the first week of Phase Two.

Paul and I bought these ice cream sandwiches and bars which claim to be atkins or south beach approved and they are SO good. I think they're called Skinny Cow - mmmmm they are so good. I'll probably find out later that they weren't really good for the diet but I don't care, they're that yummy.

I feel pressure from people to decide what I want to do in terms of continuing my education. Right now I have two main choices: 1) go to Law School, taking the 35% tuition discount offer, spend a shitload in loans, stay in school for another couple years part-time in a graduate program I'm only half interested in, OR 2) go to U of D's School of Architecture, taking no discount because I'm post degree and part-time, spend a shitload of loans, stay in school for just as long, and graduate with an undergrad in a field I'm interested in pursuing. I have ideal backgrounds for both careers having graduated from Western with a Criminal Justice degree with concentrations in Criminal Law and Procedure and experience from working in the construction industry for both degree programs respectively. But I just can't decide what's the better choice. I've also thought about getting an associates in business administration at the local community college or even an associates in construction management but those I could take on the side I guess. I'm a dork.

I don't know what to do. I mean the degree programs for both those schools are so different. This is crazy. I know what I should do, I should apply to U of M's School of Architecture and Ave Maria School of Law and then see how difficult this decision is then. My parents would all but cry if that happened. My dad, MSU alumnus, would be like "fine go to U of M, see if I care" and my mom, Marian alumna, would be like "oh! go to Ave Maria! Yea for Catholic Law!" I should totally do that. Sweet.
